Cloud-computing firm the SITS Group has picked up its second accolade in a month.

The company, based at Annitsford’s Berrymoor Court, just south of Cramlington, was named as quickest-growing medium-sized business at this year’s Ward Hadaway Fastest 50 Awards.

The annual event seeks to highlight the companies and organisations in the region boasting the strongest sales growth.

That plaudit comes just weeks after the firm was named in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100, a list of the private technology companies showing the fastest growth in sales.

Phil Cambers, commercial director of the firm, said: “We are delighted to win the Fastest 50 award.

“Our congratulations also go to Gateshead’s Mediaworks and Cramlington’s Techflow Marine, who won the small and large business categories.

“Thanks to the dedication of our staff and clients ,we have increased our turnover year on year and look forward to growing the company further in 2016.

“The Fastest 50 award win and being shortlisted in the Tech Track 100 is testament to the hard work and loyalty of our staff and clients.”

“We would like to thank our staff, customers and everyone involved with making SITS the success it is today.”

The firm, formed in 2008, is now one of the UK’s leading cloud consultancy operations, specialising in desktop virtualisation and disaster recovery.

Its clients include the Port of Tyne in South Shields, Newcastle-based Isos Housing, city law firm Muckle and Collingwood Business Solutions in North Shields.
